Klefos with 1Berkshire President Jonathan Butler in 2016. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The death of Lauri Klefos, executive vice president of 1Berkshire, has shocked a tourism and business community that had already been reluctantly preparing for her retirement this spring.    During her tenure at Berkshire Visitors Bureau, she oversaw the growth of national and social media marketing of the Berkshires, as well as the integration of business, tourism and creative economy strategies, and was instrumental in the consolidation of the county's four economic organizations into the 1Berkshire Strategic Alliance.    "1Berkshire and the Berkshires lost a great one

The staff members assembled the beds and later painted them. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — There are a lot of challenges for a family just moving into stabilized housing.   Perhaps one of the most overlooked challenges is the cost of providing beds for the children. That's why in 2012 the Massachusetts Coalition for Homeless started a "Build a Bed" program aimed to have corporate sponsors build free beds for children across the state.   "When you think of helping a child succeed, sometimes the last thing you think of is what are they sleeping in. We were so happy to identify a need such as this," said Program Director Tina Giarla.   "The expense

Williamstown Planning Board Debates 'Owner-Occupied' Component of Bylaw
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:49PM / Wednesday, November 28, 2018
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Planning Board on Tuesday night debated several aspects of the accessory dwelling unit bylaw amendment it hopes to put before voters in May, and toward the end of the nearly three-hour meeting, one thing was clear: The body is no closer to achieving consensus.   After months of discussions at full hearings, on social media and in a series of "community coffees" the board instituted earlier this year, the fundamental disagreement remains over whether to require owner-occupation at homes where a second or third unit is added to a primary residence.   Board member Alex Carlisle and the majority of the residents who spoke from the floor at

Take Advantage of Tax Diversification
12:38PM / Wednesday, November 28, 2018

As an investor, you will have access to accounts that are taxed differently from one another. And it's possible you could benefit from tax diversification by owning accounts in these three categories:

Tax-deferred: Tax-deferred accounts include the traditional IRA and a 401(k) or similar employer-sponsored retirement plan. When you invest in tax-deferred vehicles, your money can grow faster than if it were placed in an account on which you paid taxes every year. You also may get a tax deduction for contributions you make today.

Choosing a Nurse Practitioner As Your Primary Care Provider
By Brenda Strysko, DNP, CNM, FNP-BC,
12:07PM / Wednesday, November 28, 2018

Nurse practitioners (NPs) are becoming a more common health partner for many Vermonters.  According to a 2018 report by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, Americans make more than 870 million visits to NPs every year.
